A Grafton woman got separated from friends, and was attempting to find her car, when a stranger grabbed her and attempted to pull her between two buildings in the 400 block of W. Johnson St. very early Saturday morning.
The 22-year old victim was able to break from his grasp.
She started screaming and flagged down two women who were on their way to the airport. They called 911 for the victim. An officer helped her locate her car.
The case is being investigated as an attempted sexual assault.
Anyone with information on who the suspect might be should call Madison Area Crime Stoppers at 266-6014.
